Announcing SF Docfest 2011

Non-fiction films of fan stand up! 2 weeks of nothing but documentaries are just around the corner. There are over 70 films airing this year, practically guaranteeing at least something for somebody, even those who claim to not like documentaries. Really though, in a time where reality shows reign king of the tele I find it hard to believe that someone wouldn’t be interested in documentaries. Plus, this year the programmers seem especially keen on attracting the younger generation to the movies and is offering an all-you-can-see pass for just $25 to those 21 and under!

According to the press release, here’s just a hint of what you can expect to find at this year’s festival: “Egyptian belly dancers; California summer campers; the puppeteer behind Elmo; kids that run off to join the circus or want to become ballerinas; international hip hoppers; Christian card counters; English punk rockers; artists; yoga practitioners; new soldiers; compulsive collectors; stand-up comics; Tetris masters; and animator Bill Plympton.  Plus we take a delightful wander around Berlin in the Fall.”

As always stay tuned to Filmbalaya at least a week in advance as we start to preview the films for you and give you our take on what are the must-sees and what you should avoid.
